High-throughput sequencing of DNA tags is presently becoming technologically and financially accessible to many areas of biomedical research. The new technologies and applications that have emerged offer great promise of exciting new scientific discoveries and are heralding a general shift in biomedical research from a gene-centric to a genome-centric research paradigm. However, a major bottleneck in the dissemination of these technologies is the bioinformatic handling and analysis of sequencing data, and the often insurmountable challenges that researchers face in this area. The CLC bio software platform is developed as an answer to these challenges, and offers researchers an integrated analysis solution that can assist in removing the bioinformatics bottleneck and in optimizing the use of bioinformatics personnel and hardware resources within organizations. Here, we describe the general software platform with special emphasis on the four major tag-sequencing workflows supported: RNA-seq, small RNA-seq, Tag-seq and ChIP-seq.
